Transatlantic Perspective

 

Our dual legal qualification in both the EU and North America (U.S. and Canada), combined with our many years of professional experience in France, the UK and the U.S. allows us to be ideally positioned to understand the needs of both European companies looking to establish themselves or expand in North America and of U.S. companies interested in doing business in Europe.

 

Whereas a number of our clients request our assistance in support of their local operations under local law, whether in the EU or the U.S., our market differentiator and value add stems from our ability to offer outbound legal support to U.S.-based clients in Europe or to clients from the EU who need our assistance with navigating the U.S. legal and regulatory landscape.

 

Our cross-border focus takes the form of transactional legal support, drafting, localizing and negotiating contracts, website and mobile app terms of use, e/m commerce terms of sale, or privacy policies under both European and U.S. laws, and of general legal and regulatory support in bringing and maintaining our clients' operations in compliance with local laws, whether in the EU or the U.S.
